Jesse Winchester was one of the first singer-songwriters I heard when I returned from Vietnam and his music helped re-anchor me. I was aware of his passage to Canada, yet I could hear something in his voice that told he wasn't afraid and that he wasn't running from anything. There are different kinds of warriors in this world and I beileve Jesse signed on to an Army of peacekeepers and I love him for that. And God could he write and sing. I was fortunate to meet him once. Well done, Jesse!

My heartfelt condolences to the family and close friends of Jesse Winchester. He will be remembered as a great song writer and singer for many years to come. "May The Lord of peace himself give you peace constantly in every way. May The Lord be with all of you."--Thessalonians 3:16.

My Tribute to Jesse Winchester, poet, Michael Lee Johnson:

My heart is broken with the loss of Jesse Winchester, singer, songwriter, poet, that I met years ago in Edmonton, Alberta Canada while he was living in Montreal, Quebec. We were both war resisters in exile. He became a star while in Canada and moved back to TN his original home. I loved his music, the heart of it, the sound, and poet in all of us.
God bless you Jesse, I hurt. Here is the good news, you are gone, but you left a legacy behind so I hope to do also.

May you draw close to God through prayer during this time of sadness, "Before him pour out your heart" God is a refuge for us. [Psalms 62:8]

Anyone and everyone who has ever heard or met Jesse was touched by his gentle, thoughtful, angelic being. I was so blessed to have met Jesse when he first arrived in Montreal. Jamming at the Yellow Door...I will never forget how this immense talent was always humble and giving. My sincere condolences to family. Can't stop tearing up.....

I had been thinking of Jesse and signing his song "That's What Makes You Strong." Then I heard the sad news. His music has been such an important part of my life. "Far Side Bank of Jordan" was played at my sisters Memorial Service. I will treasure his music forever. I so look forward to his upcoming album. I had the honor and privilege of hearing him play in Gainesville, FL some years ago. My sincere condolences go out to his family.

I first heard Jesse's Mississippi You're On My Mind" in 1981 when Cathy Barton sang it at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS. I learned it and sang it for 25 years before I met the man who wrote it. I am fortunate I got to interview him for WUFT before he performed at the Butterfly Festival in Gainesville, FL. I saw grown men cry during that concert. Such a sweet, talented soul! I made the interview music special available for folks to hear again at www.donnagreentownsend.com
